I grew up in the winter strawberry capital of the world (Plant City, Florida) on a healthy diet of the Beach Boys, Sunday School, and donut holes.
My best friend (and Type A) mother learned piano when she was pregnant with me, which is why I read music before words and started playing piano at age 2. Then violin. Then voice. And about a dozen other instruments along the way.
acting was always my jam,
especially since my dad wanted me to be a karate expert and my mom wanted me to be a horsewoman. I figured I could play those roles someday in movies. Which I did, among others. And that was cool. But, my heart still didn’t feel fully seen.
I’ve always been able to see energy quite clearly.
I talk to angels (though, don’t most of us?!), hear what some people call the Music of the Spheres, get pulled out of bed in the middle of the night because music (apparently only audible to my ears) is waaaaay too loud. I put my hands on people, and they suddenly begin to feel better. People tell me they listen to my music because it calms their mind. (And here I always thought it was because they grooved those crazy polyrhythmic neoclassical fusion elements I so stealthily threw into a pop track). Songs come to mind as soon as you walk into the room, telling me what’s up with you.
I sometimes feel like a musical mood ring.
I’m über-disciplined, which, as a classically trained musician, comes with the territory. Except now I apply that structure to my inner self, studying and dissecting pretty much any and everything I can get my hands on related to spirituality, science, the collective consciousness, God, the Divine, Shakti, esoteric understanding… Because I’ve heard it’s all the same.
My meditative silence is solid gold.
Many paths to experience one Truth. We just call “It” by different nomenclatures. Which, too, is cool.
My paths brought me from dirt roads to Broadway, from concert halls to Hollywood. Now, they bring me to you, because the sounds around you should be just as penetrating as the silence you have within.
